Ablation

Sweet Byron, who has lately been a very healthy guy, will be having a heart procedure called an ablation on Tuesday August 24. In February of this year (2021) he developed tachycardia, a condition where his heartbeat would reach about 245 beats per minute and last up to an hour. This has happened a few times since then.

Dr. Silver, the Pediatric Cardiologist at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital in NYC, assures us that the procedure is straightforward and has a 95% success rate in teenagers. (Success means the episodes cease and do not reoccur). Byron will be in the procedure room for 2-4hours with a recovery time of 4-6 hours. He should be released that day.
With everything Byron has gone through health wise, this seems like a blip, and still - blessings are much appreciated. He starts his new high school on September 8 so we would like everything to be terrific by then.
